In a new post on his Facebook page the music veteran shares his thoughts about religion and Pentecostalism.
I think that most unstable people are attracted to Pentecostalism because of its irrationality and it condones insane and inappropriate behavior such as screaming, shouting, running, wailing, hopping, and other such things where very troubled people could fit right in and indulge their theatrics for attention. Yes o.
I think a large proportion of Pentecostal pastors are scammers, some mentally/emotionally unstable, many of them half educated because there is no requirement for rigorous scholarship to become a Pentecostal pastor. I understand that the level of education one has is not a determinant of mental/emotional stability, and that intelligent people can also be unstable; I am just speaking in general terms and trends.
Don’t become a spiritual slave to a scam artiste. All the pastors use bible and their life experience as modem for everybody. An alarming trend is the high level of demand for money in place of grace and salvation for eternal life in heaven: everything is for here and now, so that the more money you give to God through his agent the better off you are and the closer to God you will be. There also seems to be a lot of idolatry and mental enslavement in this movement and it’s ripe for dissing by people who are true Christians.
